“Too conservative” – Three changes Woodward would make to Gatland’s Lions XV

“Gatland has gone with Courtney Lawes who was brilliant in the first Test, but only workmanlike in the second. 

“I can only think that Gatland has correctly anticipated the selection of Boks lock Lood de Jager and lineout ace Franco Mostert at blindside for the Boks.”
